DETROIT >> The Detroit Lions (4-7) will face the Los Angeles Rams (10-1) today without top running back Kerryon Johnson who misses his second straight game with a knee injury. Expect LeGarrette Blount to pick up more carries like he did against the Bears on Thanksgiving.
Fullback Nick Bellore (ankle) and wide receiver Brandon Powell (calf) were also declared out on Friday. Tight end Michael Roberts (shoulder) was doubtful and is out.
Cornerback Teez Tabor will miss his second straight game. He’s healthy — it’s a coach’s decision.
Wide receiver Bruce Ellington (back) and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin (neck) were questionable but are active.
Wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr., was placed on injured reserve earlier this week.
Other inactives: Linebaker Trevor Bates and defensive end Kerry Hyder.
